Exciting news! Cheetah Chrome, the original Dead Boys guitarist, will come to Europe for a few shows in August and then again in October 2016! Turbo Booking is happy to help. 🙂
Cheetah Chrome’s explosive songwriting and raw tone influenced an entire generation of players and has been reflected in some most revered and popular bands including The Hellacopters, The Darkness, Powder Monkeys or Supersuckers.
From cutting his chops and being an architect for the US punk rock sound in Cleveland, Ohio with Rocket from The Tombs to relocating to New York City as a founding member of one of the most prolific punk rock bands of the genre, The Dead Boys.
In Fall 2016, Cheetah Chrome will be returning to Europe to embark on a tour across mainland Europe. With „The Knobs“ Cheetah has recruited a quality cast of band mates who have aligned themselves with his style and have brought his influence to their country, Tony Leewenburgh aka “Tony Slug” (BGK, Nitwitz, The Hydromatics, Loveslug, The Spades), Theo Brouwer (Lords Of Altamont, The Nitwitz, The Hydromatics) and Ries Doms (The Kik, The Hydromatics, Powervice, The Spades).

Don’t be sad when the summer is over – because in fall the wonderful singer-songwriter Louise Distras will tour with a full band in Europe! Louise Distras channels her anger, hopes and fears into anthems of love and fury for yet another let down generation. Ticking both the post-punk and pop boxes with explosive lyrics and riotous sonic disposition, Distras‘ live shows are „high energy face rippers that stand out like a meteor“.

I can’t believe that the Jenny Don’t And The Spurs and the Louise Distras tour both are over. But Jenny will come back in May/June with Don’t (including their new band member Eric “Vegetable” Olson from Poison Idea) and also Louise will come back in April with her band! 🙂
Thank you very much, people, who organized shows, people, who promoted shows and people, who came and enjoyed these two amazing bands!
Detroit 442 (angry oldschool punkrock from Detroit, one of the most violent cities in the world) will tour Europe in March 2017.
After her successfull first tour with a full band Louise Distras will come back with her girls and boys in April/May 2017.
Pete Bentham and the Dinner Ladies are back! After a small break the only Kitchen core band in the world will be back in April 2017 with their new 4 track vinyl EP „Pychedelic Village“ (Antipop Records)!
The Ghost Wolves from Texas were signed by Hound Gawd! Records (Berlin, Germany) and will publish their new album „Texas Platinum“ in spring 2017, followed by a 3-week European tour.
The Anarcho Punk legend Subhumans will tour in February 2017 in Germany and the Netherlands followed by lots of festivals in summer in whole Europe.
Eric “Vegetable” Olson (Poison Idea) and Kelly Halliburton (Problems, Defiance, Pierced Arrows etc.) joined Don’t (Rockstar Records, Germany / Doomtown Sounds, Portland), the band of Wipers-drummer Sam Henry and singer Jenny Don’t. This Portland Punk Allstar band will tour in May and June 2017 through Europe and bring their new 7inch.
Dominik from Canal Terror and Molotow Soda is the new guitarist for the popular punk band F*cking Angry from Bonn, Germany (Rilrec). They will play as much as they can in 2017!
Turbo Booking is busy as a bee. I’m preparing eight tours right now for Portland’s admirable and adorable Don’t, P.R.O.B.L.E.M.S. and Jenny Don’t & The Spurs, also for Feral Kizzy’s wonderful wave/dark pop which always reminds me of the B-52’s, another tour for the very special all-girl post punk/noise pop band Punčke from Croatia and last but not least for the Veggers, Reddot and the Dead Buttons, the first Korean punk bands ever touring in Germany!
